The Year in Review
The Sassos had a busy year. We enjoyed a summer vacation at the Hard Rock Café resort in Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic. We had a blast swimming in the many pools and lazy rivers, as well as in the ocean. The food was delicious. Although John Robert got a little sick, that didn’t slow him down. We also watched a theater performance each night.
In August, John Robert played the role of Michael in Peter Pan, and did a great job. Three days later, he started at Learning Prep, his new middle school. He was only able to attend for one day, and then he had his open-heart surgery. He was in and out of the Intensive Care Unit in only 2 days—and he made it out of the hospital in only 4 days. It was a whirlwind ride!
He made it back to school at the end of September, and in October, John Robert and his friend Jason played the two wicked stepsisters in the musical Cinderella. The boys stole the show. My son as a drag queen, it was funny. He’s pursuing Jazz, Tap, Drama, and Boy Scouts.
John is still working for Nextegic, and he is going on 4 years. Lisa is still working for herself, and doing her coaching and motivational speaking. This year Lisa earned her PCC (Professional Certified Coach) accreditation for coaching— through the ICF (International Coach Federation), and also her PSM (Professional Speakers Member) for speaking—through the NSA (National Speakers Association).
Mom and Dad Tosi celebrated their birthdays in December, and Mom and Dad Sasso had their birthdays in April. All the grandparents are doing well. Dad Sasso had both knees replaced this year. Mom Tosi is still suffering from memory issues.
This past year I was able to donate more than $1,000 to Children’s Hospital from the proceeds of my book, Motivation Now!. I thank you and appreciate all of you who purchased my book. Now, I am giving back to you and Children’s Hospital in the form of my Goal Setting Seminar on the 30th.
Please save the date for Goal Setting for Success with Accountability, Balance and Gratitude on Wed., January 30, 2019 from 6:30pm-8:30pm (use the sign-up genius link below to reserve your spot).
Here’s wishing you a Happy New Year. I hope you and everyone in your family are healthy and well. — From The Sasso’s
